    Tàpies's most synthetic material work in white. Created in 1962 and exhibited at the Martha Jackson Gallery in New York, Tàpies marks three small square incisions on the material, as accidents that appear by chance on the wall. The use of a single white tone is not deliberate. It is, as with the more frequent gray paintings, a reaction to the colorism that accompanied the art of the previous generation, and at the same time a distancing from the impact of advertising and the constant signaling of colors, as the artist himself explained. Behind the image that condenses the mystical and poetic world of the artist, one can perceive the distant echo of Miró stripped of literature, as well as the close reminiscence of the painting that Tàpies knew at that time.
